Hi I know my answer is late Hi I know my answer is late for yout post, and I hope you are doing better today. I suffered severe serotonin syndrome in Jan and Feb 2016. Hospitalized and in ICU on ventilator for 3 days. I was taking cymbalta and psychiatrist ordered buspar. I took the buspar x2 doses and then eas shopping with a friend who knew me..thank God. I completely decompensated to point of acting like a bad horror movie demon-driven maniac. Hallucinating, throwing my arms and legs around to relieve muscle rigidity, rocking myself, begging over and over "please please help me! HELP ME!". No one knew what had happened to me. Er docs asked my son if I was taking illict illegal street drugs..like BATH SALTS!. I was acting that badly restrained x4 with 2 big burly secutity guards holding me down too. I bit people, screamed, felt like my arms and legs were hurting so badly that I was begging for help. They gave me so much medicine to stop my unbelievable behavior that I literally stopped breathing. Had to be entubated and put in icu for 3 days. They did every medical test possible as well as every blood drug test. Everything was ok. Doc told my son that I mught never be the same if I did wake up. No one even thought about serotonin syndrome. After I recovered and came home I started researching what happened. I am an RN. I discovered that my cymbalta and new buspar could have precipitated event BUT MY CULPRIT was MUCINEX (OTC cough suppresnt" According to many articles on internet, this combo caused my serotonin syndrome. Who would ever thought an over the counter med for a cold combined with my new buspar and cymbalta would almost kill me. If you research this, you will find many meds that counteract and cause serotonin syndrome. Tramadol (ultram) is a big one and so is DEMEROL! Big big no no's. I cannot ever take another antidepressant cause of my hx. I miss my cymbalta SO MUCH! But I am limited to wellbutrin (made me so mean and angry), Abilify (which is directly contra-indicated by pharmacistt) with my Requip for severe restless legs and lastly Remeron which causes extreme wt gain. So right now I am taking nothing for nerous and metal If I slip up and dont research a medicine properly, then i experience milder but still miserable serotonin overload. I have about given up. submitted by Dee Smith 0 sec ago
Hi, My name is Darcy and my dentist put me on Amoxicillin on Friday. I have taken it in the past with no problem, but 3 years ago I had a Sleeve Gastrectomy and I have found many things have changed in my system. So Friday I started taking the Amaxocillin and on Saturday afternoon I noticed swelling and pain in my hands. I took Aleve and it didn't help at all! Usually it helps some. On Sunday I asked my sister (a nurse) if there was any allergy to amoxicillin that she knows of and she said it sounded like dehydration to her. I started ramping up my liquids and by Monday afternoon I was feeling better.....when I went to take my lunchtime amoxicillin I realized I had forgotten my morning dose! I went ahead and took my dose and the next one and all my joints started hurting. (I do have fibromyalgia). I discussed it with my husband and stopped taking the amoxicillin and this morning I called my dentist and he took me off the amoxicillin. My swelling has improved since last night but I am still having some pain and swelling and Aleve is not helping. I have a call in to my primary but have not heard back yet. His is my case.....glad to meet everyone. I am looking forward to reading about others cases. Darcy
